Plant City family wakes up to 9ft gator knocking on patio door

KNOCK, KNOCK...Around 2:45AM on June 1, a Plant City family woke up to a knock on their sliding glass doors. When they flipped on their lights, they certainly weren't expecting it to be a 9-foot alligator. District II deputies responded and helped FWC safely trap and relocate the gator. No one was injured.

The home is near a small retention pond. If you ever find yourself in a similar situation,teamHCSO wants to make sure you know exactly what to do!
